The treasury of Wizardry II


Reward types

Rewards #0 through #4 are the Knight of Diamond's pieces of armor, collected as loose treasure after defeating the encounters.

Rewards #5 through #9 are loose gold dropped by monsters who aren't guarding treasure chests.

Rewards #10 through #14 are not given by any monster in the game, and are not listed.

Rewards #15 through #19 are the standard treasure chests.

The treasure table bug in Wiz1 appears to have been corrected. There are no gaps in the treasure table, and all items may appear as random chest loot except for broken items, the Knight of Diamond's armor and sword, Staff of Gnilda, and three "trick" items (more on those later).

Common item properties

Here’s an overview of some of the item properties that are common to multiple item types, but aren’t self-explanatory. This section is duplicated from the original Wiz1 treasury post.

Boltac

How much of this item Boltac’s has in stock at the start. This decreases when you buy one, and increases when you sell one, but Boltac’s will never sell you cursed items, even if he has them in stock. They persist from game to game; if you sell Boltac’s a Lord’s Garb, then delete every character from the roster and roll a new party, Boltac’s will still have that Lord’s Garb in stock until somebody buys it. Likewise, if you purchase an item of limited quantity, it will not be available for future parties playing on that disk.

AC

Equipping this item lowers your AC by this much. Negative values raise it, which is bad. A few non-armor items have this property.

Your chance to be hit in melee per strike is:
(MonsterLevel + ArmorClass) * 5%

Special: Casts

You can use the item to cast a spell. Sometimes this comes with a chance of depleting the item, which will cause it to transform into a different item. For instance, Staff of Mogref has [Casts: MOGREF, 25% BROKEN ITEM], which means it can cast Mogref, but has a 25% chance of turning into a Broken item when you do. Items without this second designation will never be depleted.

Special: Invoke

Like casting, except that you invoke the item during a camping session and the effect is unique.

Special: Critical hits

Equipping this allows you to critical hit like a ninja. Whenever you inflict melee damage, there is a (CharacterLevel * 2%) chance of instantly killing the victim. Hrathnir is the only item that can grant this to non-ninjas.

Special: Heal X

Carrying this (you don't need to equip it) gives you a 25% chance of healing X points each step and each round of combat. If you have multiple healing items, only the one with the largest value takes. The Deadly Ring is supposed to hurt you 3 points, but doesn't in this version because the game logic selects the "bigger" default value of 0 over the Deadly Ring's value of -6.

Protection: Class protection

When monsters of the protected type(s) target you, there's a 50% chance that it silently fails, causing them to lose their turn. Note that all monster actions, including breath attacks, party-hitting spells, and actions without obvious targets like running or calling, always target a random living party member. Class protection will not protect you from breath attacks or group spells that targeted a non-protected character.
 
Melee attacks are a special case, due to some strange programming. Melee attacks technically target  two party members - the first can be any living member, and the second is someone in the first three ranks. This means two separate class protection checks, and either one may nullify the attack. It's possible for the same party member to be targeted both times, in which case if they have protection there is a 75% chance of nullifying it.
 

Protection: 2x damage

Your melee strikes do double damage against monsters of the targeted classes.

Protection: Elemental protection

Breath attacks and group-targeting spells of the indicated element(s) do half damage. In addition,
  • Physical – You are immune to paralysis effects from hits. You will also never suffer critical hits.
  • Poison – You are immune to poison effects from hits.
  • Drain – You are immune to level drain.
  • Stone – You are immune to stone effects from hits.
  • Magic – When a monster targets you with any spell, the spell is silently nullified. Note that spells cast by monsters always target a randomly chosen living character, even if it's a group-affecting spell like Mahalito. Magic protection will not protect you if a group-affecting spell targets a non-protected character.


Weapons

Two tables. The first describes general properties of all weapons, and the second describes special properties of magic weapons. Magic weapons are bolded.

Hit Mod

Increase your character’s HitMod by this much, allowing you to hit more often. Negative values decrease it.

Your odds of hitting with each strike are:
(HitMod + StrengthMod + MonsterAC) * 5%

StrengthMod can be as high as 3 with maximum strength, or as low as -3 with minimum strength. There may be further modifiers based on the monster's group position, but I don't know.

Hit Dam

The weapon’s base damage, per successful hit. It can be further modified by strength, as much as +3 with maximum strength, or as low as -3 with minimum strength.

Swing Count

The number of strikes per turn. This does not stack with the number of swings your character would normally get. The higher value is the one that takes.

A Swing Count of 0 is essentially equivalent to a Swing Count of 1, since all characters are guaranteed at least 1 swing at any level.

Fighters, samurai, and lords have natural values of:
(CharacterLevel/5) + 1

Ninjas get:
(CharacterLevel/5) + 2

10 is the maximum, and all other classes get only one.

The Great Mage Wand is a clever bit of mechanics abuse. It is actually two weapons with the same name. The good one, when invoked, transforms into the bad one. And the bad one, when invoked, turns into a broken item. This creates the appearance of being one item, which has a good effect the first time you invoke it and the bad one the second time. Interestingly, even the bad one will max out your spell points, but this isn't much use given that it resets your spellbook too.


Armor

Once again, two tables. One for the general properties of all armor, and one for special properties of magic armor. Magic armor is bolded.

As in Wizardy I, the Lord's Garb is supposed to grant critical hits and 2x damage against were beasts, demons, and undead, but due to programming that only checks for these flags on weapons, does not.
 

Consumables


These items all cast a spell when used, and then turn into BROKEN ITEM. Any class can use any consumable. This table is completely unchanged from Wiz1.

Coin of Power and Amulet of Skill are two more items that transform into bad versions of themselves. The Amulet of Skill is especially insidious, as it has a fairly low chance of this happening, so you might use it again and again until suddenly you notice it's a Broken Item, and now you're dead forever.

Three of the items here, not including the useless BROKEN ITEM, don't have their class flags set! Possessing them is enough to confer their benefits, though, as noted in the discussion below.
 
The Deadly Ring is even deadlier than before! Except it isn't, because negative heal values still don't do anything.

The bestiary of Wizardry II


As before, I've split this into multiple tables, with notes duplicated from the Wiz1 bestiary. Please note that Wizardry 2 has changed some things up, so these notes might not be completely accurate!

Picture

These pictures were extracted from the Apple II disk images.

Names

Each monster gets four names. A normal name, a name representing the unidentified monster, and plural variants for both.

Group Size

The number of monsters that may appear in a group. This will never exceed (MazeLevel + 4).

HP / Level

The hit dice which determine the monster’s starting HP, which rolls for each individual monster during an encounter. The dice count also serves as the monster's level. Fuzzballs, for instance, with 100d1 - 99 HP, count as level 100, even though they always only have 1 HP.


A monster's chance to hit you in melee is (Level + YourAC) * 5% per strike.

A monster's chance to resist a successful critical hit is (Level + 10)/35.

Monsters always resist Makanito if their level is greater than 7.

Each monster’s chance to resist Lakanito is Level * 6%.


The morale of a monster group is equal to its level, multiplied by the number of monsters whose status is OK.

When your total party level exceeds the total monster morale of all groups, they will be demoralized, and monsters with the Run ability have a 65% chance to flee.

When monsters are demoralized (even if they cannot run), your chance to succeed when running is 20% higher.


When monsters advance, each monster has a “strength” value determined by this formula:
[Remaining HP] - 3 * (MageLevel + PriestLevel)

The group strength is the sum of all monsters’ strength in the group, only counting monsters with OK status.

After group strength is calculated for all groups, monster group 4 compares its strength to monster group 3, and performs this calculation:
20% * [Group 4 Strength] / [Group 3 Strength] + 31%

This result is the probability that each group moves up a rank.

The process repeats for group 3 and group 2.

Certain items, when equipped, will have a 50% chance of silently nullifying attacks from specific monster classes, should the monster decide to attack the character equipped with such an item. They do not affect spells or breath weapons.

Certain weapons deal double damage against specific monster classes.

Makanito never affects the undead. Zilwan and Dispell only affect the undead.


Attacks

Simple hit dice to determine damage when a monster hits.

Some monsters have multiple attacks, and they don’t always do the same amount of damage. For instance, the greater demon’s attack is:
2d12 1d6 1d4 1d4 1d4

That means it strikes five times, each strike has a separate chance to hit, and each landed hit inflicts the corresponding damage roll.

Special: X Breath

The monster has a breath attack of element type X. Any monster with a breath attack has a 60% chance of using it instead of attacking. Breath attacks hit all players for damage equal to half of the monster’s remaining HP. Characters equipped with an item with that elemental resistance, or who make a saving throw against breath will take half damage. If both conditions are met, they take 25% damage. Element type has no other effect. Stone breath, for instance, does not petrify; it merely indicates that characters equipped with stone elemental protection will take half damage.

Special: Drain X

If you are hit, you will lose X levels, and your maxHP will be reduced to ([newLevel]*[oldMaxHP])/[MaxLev], where MaxLev is the highest level you've reached without getting drained (switching classes resets your level but not your MaxLevel). You’ll be LOST if you drop below level 1!

No-see-um's and Dragon Zombies don't have this ability; they only have a breath attack with the Drain element.

Special: Heal X

The monster heals this many HP per round.

Reward 1 & Reward 2

Index values used to lookup the type of treasure the monster leaves. This is always based on the monster type that was initially selected for the encounter. Monsters types that populated the rear ranks are irrelevant.

“Reward 1” almost always indicates an amount of loose gold, and “Reward 2” almost always indicates a treasure chest which may or may not have items inside. Whether you get reward type 1 or type 2 is not entirely random.

Upon entering a dungeon level, the map will be seeded with nine treasure chests, which will be distributed in designated treasure rooms. Entering a room with a treasure chest guarantees an encounter, and the “Reward 2” column will be selected as the contents of the treasure chest. Treasures from standard encounters are selected from the “Reward 1” column and are usually just loose piles of gold.

If you set off an alarm trap, then you'll still get a "Reward 2" prize after winning the resulting encounter, without having to re-open the treasure chest, but the prize will be determined from the resulting encounter rather than from the initial one.

If you have a random encounter in a treasure room where there isn't any treasure chest, you will receive loose gold from the “Reward 1” column, but the amount will be doubled.

Partner

When a monster encounter is selected, it will be in the first monster group. There is a chance that it will come with a “partner,” if it has one, in the second monster group. This is recursive; if the partner type is selected, then that partner also gets a chance of having its partner in the next group slot. There is a limit of 4 groups, or MazeLevel+1, whichever is lower.

For example, Major Daimyo have a partner value of 50% LVL 7 Priest. So if you encounter them, there is a 50% chance that priets will spawn too. If this happens, then since Lvl 7 Priests have a partner value of 40% Champ Samurai there would be a 40% chance of Champ Samurai in the third group slot, and so on.

Mage Level

The highest level of mage spell that the monster may cast.

Monster mage logic:
  • Monsters with any mage spells have a 75% of casting instead of attacking.
  • The monster then selects a random value from the right column of this table, according to the odds in the left column:

    71% 0
    20.59% 1
    5.97% 2
    1.73% 3
    0.5% 4
    0.15% 5
    0.06% 6
  • This number is subtracted from the Mage Level value, but it won’t drop below 1. 
  • Finally, the monster picks one of two spells within that level. There is a 66% chance of picking spell A, and a 34% chance of picking spell B.
  • After casting the spell, there is a 1 / (Monster group size + 2) chance that the group's mage level decreases by one point, affecting all individuals within it.

Monster mage spells (levels do not completely correspond to player spell levels):


A B
1 Katino Halito
2 Dilto Halito
3 Molito Mahalito
4 Dalto Lahalito
5 Lahalito Madalto
6 Madalto Zilwan
7 Tiltowait Tiltowait

It's curious that Zilwan is one of the spells, as it will never affect anyone in your party!

 

Priest Level

Priest spellcasting logic is a bit different.
  • A priest spellcaster who did not cast a mage spell has a 75% chance of casting a priest spell instead of attacking.
  • When casting a priest spell, monsters always select the highest value allowed.
  • There is still a 66% chance of selecting spell A and a 34% chance of selecting spell B.
  • There is a 1 / (Monster group size + 2) chance that the group's priest level decreases by one point. Same as with mage spells.


A B
1 Badios Badios
2 Montino Montino
3 Badios Badial
4 Badial Badial
5 Badialma Badi
6 Lorto Mabadi
7 Mabadi Mabadi

Spell Resistance

The monster’s percentage chance to resist certain spells. A resisted spell has no effect on the monster.

Spells subject to Spell Resistance are:
Badios, Badial, Badialma, Litokan, Lorto, Malikto, Halito, Mahalito, Molito, Dalto, Lahalito, Madalto, Zilwan, Tiltowait

In addition, Mabadi and Makanito seem to be subject to Spell Resistance, as I've seen them fail against monsters who should otherwise be subject to their effects. Proving this without reverse-engineered source code is difficult, though.

Elemental Resistance 

Spell damage from group targeting-spells is cut in half if the monster resists the corresponding element. Physical resistance does not affect non-spell damage!

Element Spells
Fire Litokan, Mahalito, Lahalito
Physical Lorto, Malikto, Molito, Tiltowait
Cold Dalto, Madalto

Poison, Drain, Stone, and Magic elemental resistances do nothing, because none of the group-targeting spells in Wizardry are aligned to those elements.

Abilities

  • Sleep – The only “bad” ability. Monsters with this ability are affected by Katino. Any others are not.
  • Run – If the monster party is demoralized, then each monster with this ability has a 65% chance to run each turn.
  • Critical – When the monster lands one or more successful hits, it has a [Level * 2%] chance, up to a maximum of 50%, to instantly kill.
  • Poison – Sets poison rate to 1 on a successful hit.
  • Paralyze – Inflicts paralysis on a successful hit.
  • Call – If the monster group has fewer than 5 monsters in it, then each monster has a 75% chance of calling for help instead of attacking. The chance that a call for help will be successful is (MonsterLevel * 5%).
  • Stone – Inflicts stone status on a successful hit.

XP

Just a note here - in Wizardry 1, XP was a calculated aggregate from all other stats. Here, XP is a fixed value. Normally this wouldn't be worth mentioning except for the fact that this is a thing that changed.
